The Cleveland Cultural Gardens are a staple in our community and bring hundreds of men and woman together to a place to celebrate all the diversity our great city has to offer.
The Big 100
The One World Day Festival recently took place on Sunday August 23 and was a celebration of Cleveland’s rich ethnic heritage commemorated in 29 existing and 8 developing gardens. This years event kicked off the Centennial Year for the Cultural Gardens, which was only the beginning of more celebrations to come in 2016.
The festivities began with a colorful Parade of Flags and then ushered in more Americans as the oath of citizenship was conducted. There was a vast selection of flags waving along East Boulevard which made for an even more beautiful sight for those in attendance.
Visitors also got the chance to enjoy delicious food from local vendors, watch musical performances and stroll through the gardens. Each nationality has its own unique background to showcase and there is no better place for Clevelanders to do just that than at the One World Day Festival and the cultural gardens.
The goal is to make the gardens more accessible to people and for them to be more aware of the gardens themselves.
